Our History

fatherIntroduction of its genesis including its registration status
The Fatorda Salesian Society is a registered Society in the State of Goa. We are part of the World wide society of DON BOSCO with our branches in over 100 countries in the world. Our head office is situated in Rome. In India we have over five hundred institutes engaged in the education of the Young. Our Regional office is set up at Odxel, near Goa University campus. Our Focus is in the Education of the Young. The Institution has been established and is administered by the Salesians of Don Bosco and it is open to all the Youth, irrespective of caste or creed.
Details of its Promoters including their background
In 1971, on account of the complexity of works, the Technical Section of Panjim was shifted to Fatorda. This shift also marked the Silver Jubilee of the arrival of the Salesian in Goa. Fr. Henry Torra, a Spaniard, was entrusted with the supervision of the construction of buildings and starting of the project. The purpose of the Don Bosco Technical School was to train the boys who were unable to complete their education. The Institute commenced its activities on July 16, 1973, offering non formal training in the trades of the Fitter, Machinist, Welder, Electrician and Motor Mechanic. It received a very encouraging response and the needs kept growing, such that in August 1983, the National Council for Vocational Training (NCVT), Government of India recognized it as an Industrial Training Institute (ITI).

Alumni Testimonials


The best four years of my life!

My time at DBCE left me with an open mind and important skills.The Civil Engineering course was interesting. The diversity of modules really broadened my thinking. The actual project and assignments we did during the course taught me a lot about Civil Engineering – not just in theory, but also in practice. It was the best four years of my life! I found a very caring and homely environment at DBCE where the faculty and staff were exceptionally supportive. To any new student coming to DBCE, I would say this: DBCE is not just a College of Engineering, it is a whole experience. It helped me open many doors in my journey to start my professional career. Throw yourself at every opportunity that comes your way.

Helped in developing my leadership skills and to crack GATE examination

“I would like to thank Don Bosco College Engineering, for providing me with an opportunity that not only developed my fundamentals in Mechanical Engineering but also helped in developing my leadership skills. This helped me to crack GATE examination and get admission in a top institute like VJTI, for pursuing my masters. Currently, I’m associated with one of the top Swiss MNC, contributing significantly towards the world of Science and Technology, which was not possible without the support of DBCE college staff and management. Thank you once again and all the best for future endeavors”.

Immense sense of pride and gratitude

Cheers to the Mechanical Engineering department at DBCE for providing me with the fundamental skills which paved my way not only to secure my first job right after graduation at CSIR-National Institute of Oceanography but also to get a master’s degree at Western. Without the necessary facilities, state of the art infrastructure and impeccable dedication of the faculty and staff, I would not be in the position that I am in today. Having seen the everlasting growth of the institution from infancy to being one of the most preferred engineering college in Goa, it gives me an immense sense of pride and gratitude to be a part of its alumni base.
